Red Gold Sausage Lasagna Recipe and Vlog

sausage lasagna recipe

This is actually a happy face.  He changes expressions so often it’s hard to capture the exact one I need.


We’re on our second snow day here on the windy plains and I’ve decided to mix things up a bit.  Instead of a regular sausage lasagna recipe blog post I decided to to a vlog post.  *gasp*  I know, I know.  It’s wild and crazy.  Don’t worry, it won’t happen too often.

A few weeks back my friends at Red Gold Tomatoes sent me a little a package of Red Gold Tomatoes and no bake lasagna noodles.  I’ve been a busy little mamma so I’m finally finding time to make lasagna.  This week was very cold so I knew warm comfort food would be in order.  When we got the call early in the morning saying it would be a snow day I knew today would be the day for a bubbly, comforting sausage lasagna.

Here are a few notes about my vlogging abilities.

1)  I have no idea how to work iMovie.  So the fact that I have transitions between the clips is amazing.  I should get a SAG award for my transitions.  

2)  Since the most advanced thing I know how to do in iMovie is transitions, don’t expect much else.  One step at a time here, people.

3) I made a little mistake near the end.  I’m not going to tell you what it is in case you miss it.  However, there is no such thing as retakes at this stage in the game.  Sorry.

4) Everyone looks so much better in natural light.  Unfortunately the natural light in my kitchen only extends so far and we’ll just have to make due with yellow, overhead lighting.  sigh.

It really was a yummy lasagna.  Despite Addison’s protests he ate it all up.  The only way he wouldn’t protest at dinner is if we alternated plain pasta and Raising Cane’s chicken every other night.

After having watched this and the only thing you can think is Where can I get such a cute headband?  And that Valentine’s Day heart garland?  I love it! I wish I had one.  Well, today is your lucky day.  You can hop on over to my Etsy store and find cute headbands and a Valentine’s Day garland just like the one over my kitchen table.

    You are so FREAKING ADORABLE!!! I love love love that headband!! I wish so badly I could wear them!! They always look so cute on everyone… they just immediately fall off my egghead! Pff. Hate that. SO much.


    You are a SUPERSTAR vlogger girl!! Lasagna looks incredible- and I totally agree, two cans of tomatoes ain’t no compensation at ALL. 😉 But- hey, ya gotta good meal recipe (or five) and a great vlog… so there it is. 🙂

      Awwwww, thank you so much. You’re compliments mean so much to me. And yes, tomatoes are not compensation but at least they got my butt in the kitchen and inspired this post. So that’s something.
